Grilled Lemon Chicken is so delicious and packed with lemon flavor. The garlic and onion adds another depth of flavor that creates one fantastic piece of chicken!

That’s when I make my hubby fire up the grill outside and help me with dinner! He is the grill master at our house after all.

This Grilled Lemon Chicken is what we had the other night and it is beyond delicious and packed with lemon flavor. The garlic and onion adds another depth of flavor that creates one fantastic piece of chicken! It is totally yummy and healthy. My entire family loves this chicken!
